Prepare for FB, Google

Jan 15, 2018 29 Comments

I am an SDE3 at Amazon, Seattle. Total work experience: 10 years, Amazon: 7 years.

Don’t have any issues with current job except the pay. I am getting: 145k base + 100 RSU(1250) = 270k

What can I expect for equivalent level at FB or Google?

Any pointers for how to prepare would be helpful. I know about leetcode and geeks4geeks.

      @bPRG82 because money isn't the only thing that matters? The opportunities, weather, and quality of life are so much better here in the bay.

    Google of FB, aim for L5 / E5. You can expect $350k TC (with sign on).

    At Microsoft, aim for L65. You can expect $350k TC for new Hire.

      Would be tough to get L5 at G with 7 yoe.

      350k at bay area would be not a huge difference from what he is making in Seattle.

      By the way as sde 3, ur pay seems a little low

      ^Not true. Depends on how long he has been an SDE3.

    How can this happen when Amazon stocks did so well in last 7 years. You can get about 300-350 TC depending on interview performance and prior experience.

      Might have moved from some other country via an internal transfer.

    How do you have such a low base salary? All SDE 3s I know have hit 160k base.

      I suspect a recent promo.

  • Is that 100 RSU per year? How are you SDE3 and not at the salary cap? Your comp could go way way higher elsewhere my friend, so long as you negotiate well.
